Researchers at MIT could be made partly from carbon dioxide captured from power plant by continuously converting carbon dioxide into a solid mineral carbonate as it discharges.
MIT researchers and other institutions have come up with a way to bypass such expensive and time-consuming fabrication and testing for solar panels and cells, allowing for a rapid screening of far more variations than would be practical through the traditional approach.
MIT researchers have developed machine learning software designed to take diagnostic information on any car through a smartphone by analyzing the car's sounds and vibrations, which are measured by the phone's accelerometers and microphone.
An MIT study has found a new way to enhance or reduce the adhesion of freezing droplets, which could have a major impact on coatings used for machine parts and for applications such as 3-D printers.
Researchers at MIT have completed a series of tests on lithium iodide (Lil) batteries that may overcome some of the drawbacks for future researchers looking to create more energy-efficient products.
Researchers at MIT have developed a fast, inexpensive robotic device that can find even tiny leaks in pipes with pinpoint precision, no matter what the pipes are made of.
MIT engineers have developed a method to control the way water moves over a surface using only light, which could enhance technologies such as microfluidic diagnostic devices or field systems that could separate water from oil at a drilling rig.
Researchers at MIT are working on making it an abundant material to print with and potentially providing a renewable, biodegradable alternative to the polymers currently used in 3-D printing materials.
Researchers at MIT and elsewhere have developed a new way of driving fluid droplets across surfaces in a precisely controlled way, which could be used for highly adaptable microfluidic devices, self-cleaning surfaces, and highly efficient condensers.
Researchers at MIT have found a way to use mid-infrared lasers that produce glowing plasma filaments in open air, which could enable long-distance monitoring.
